Evacuation has become a way of life when living on the gulf coast. If you evacuated for Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, or Gustav, you may have felt unprepared when you left. With the Louisiana Citizen Awareness & Disaster Evacuation Guide, you don't have to feel that way anymore. Compiled by the Louisiana Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, this guide contains a wealth of information for preparing to evacuate, and what to do after you've evacuated.

* Contraflow maps with instructions and major intersection maps
* How to create a family communications plan
* Important state agency contact info
* Emergency shelter locations
* Emergency radio system
* Weather terms
* Call 211 information
